Twisted Expressions

Updated on November 11, 2014
Source

By: Wayne Brown


CrackerJacks, Knapsacks, Long Handles, Backpacks

Get it together; out the door; make some tracks

Alligator, Crocodile, both wear a funny smile

Don’t get too close; see ya in just a little while


Jumping Jacks, Paper Sacks, Laundry Basket, Shoe Wax

Get serious about it all; No braggin’ just the facts

Speckled Hen, Ink Pen, Loaf Bread loaded with Marmalade

Don’t mess around; Do your work or don’t get paid


Peanut Butter, Cow’s Udder, Motor Scooter, Golf Putter

Got your game face on? Or is your mind in the gutter?

Flip-Flop , Baby-Talk, Hundred Dollar Bill up in smoke

Don’t play with matches; that sure ain’t no joke!


Smokey Bear, Red Hair, Pink Pajamas, Purple Underwear

Let’s make some lemonade that we can all share

Tin Can, Hubcap, something hidden in the trunk

Mama says you better get a bath and get in the bunk


Generator, Alternator, Kitchen Counter, Agitator

A nickel or a penny, take the one that is greater?

Rubber Boot, Shotgun, Runnin’ with the Buffalo

When you want to have fun, where do you go?


Astronaut, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Bank Teller, Burial Plot

Do you like to dance or spin around in one spot?

Jump Rope, Duck Call, Horses lined up in the stall

Do you believe in ghost? Who ya gonna call?

      Fun! The beat and rhyming words remind me of kids jump-roping while trash-talking. Not really trash (ya know what I mean).
